"1883 Magazine celebrates all that is new and exciting in the world of fashion, music, film and the arts. We show you who and what is new and who to watch out for in the future! Born in West London in 2010, 1883 is an independently produced lifestyle biannual and online platform that showcases and promotes the most innovative new talent around. What began as a small fashion publication centred in-and-around London, has now evolved into an internationally distributed magazine that not only looks at fashion, but also delves into the worlds of music, film and the arts. This is the magazine where future talents reveal their thoughts, challenges and industry secrets. This is the magazine which captures the household names of tomorrow. 1883 Magazine's aim is to showcase and promote the most innovative new talent around. We provide the reader a rare opportunity to learn the reality behind the fantasy of inspiring images. Our philosophy is to portray this new talent in a professional way that can compete on an equal level with established talent showcased in other major fashion publications. 1883 does this via the use of top class imagery and editorials that are both stylishly laid out and printed on high quality, heavy weight gloss paper. 1883 Digital is a constant source of information on the hottest new talent in fashion, music, film and the arts. Our online site also encompasses 1883 TV, which streamlines interviews and creative videos for rapid consumption and 1883 Blog, which provides information in a more visual format. 1883 Digital holds regular competitions to engage the reader. 1883 has a small yet determined team, who work together persistently to promote and grow the brand. We are on the lookout for sponsors and collaborative partners who can identify with 1883's philosophy and would like to be associated with the brand". Contact: Alicia Tomlinson, Editor in Chief.

Arts Students' Union represents the 20,000+ students of the University of the Arts London's six colleges. "We aim to help students embrace different experiences as they develop their creative practice through study. Arts SU is independent from the University, which means that we are always on the side of students. Made in Arts London (MiAL) is a not-for-profit enterprise run by Arts SU, promoting and selling art and design by students and recent graduates. We support our artists in their personal and professional development to break into the creative market. MiAL curates annual exhibitions, which explore relevant themes affecting artists as they progress from student to professional. How will 'Brexit' and the introduction of borders affect emerging artists in the UK and beyond? Through a week-long exhibition of students' work and an inspiring programme of professional-development workshops, Borderless addresses the new socio-economic obstacles facing British and international students and discusses how contribution from creatives across the world is vital to our multicultural society. Approximately twenty selected MiAL artists will exhibit their work, which we invite the public to view and purchase should they wish. As a not-for-profit, all profit goes straight to our student artists, ensuring they are valued for their time and talent. We have a number of sponsorship opportunities available and are seeking the perfect organisations to creatively collaborate with, in turn benefiting Borderless, our student membership and your brand's visibility and status. Please get in touch for an informal chat about your marketing objectives and how your financial support will make a difference to the next generation of artists". Contact: Jess Forsyth.

With annual visitor figures exceeding 15,000+, Handmade in Britain events are an essential highlight of the UK's craft portfolio for designer-makers, collectors, industry professionals and design enthusiasts.

Opened in late 2007, a five minute journey from the UK's busiest airport, London Heathrow, and a fifteen minute train ride from London Paddington station, London Motor Museum is an exciting, innovative museum which encapsulates the essence of motoring achievement and features an element of extreme conversion vehicles never seen before. The museum's collection currently houses over 200 vehicles, covering the eras of the 1930s through to modern day concept cars. A wide range of transport vehicles is displayed, including bikes, trucks and concept cars. Being the only motor museum in the London region, the museum is able to stimulate the most profound motoring fanatics as well as provide an educational element which introduces innovation and core aspects of technology and design. A wide market reach, with targeted audiences being families, predominately males, and a large tourist interest, the London Motor Museum provides a fantastic canvas for inventive displays and exhibitions, being involved in some of the most prestigious and well-known motoring events - such as Goodwood Festival of Speed and Top Gear Live - and working for companies such as Nokia, Microsoft and Disney. London Motor Museum has always heavily based employment for the younger generation and provides hands-on opportunities to be involved in all aspects, such as planning, marketing and production. The museum's aims are to provide unique opportunities for the local community; it aims to raise funds for local youth programmes as well as establish a base and provide training through workshops and employment prospects. The museum is seeking sponsorship to market and promote the education programmes and to fund core collaboration projects with the community. The redevelopment of the suites will greatly improve revenue sources. To implement the second phase, a subsidiary museum in central London is planned. London Motor Museum is looking for sponsors to help fund projects and the redevelopment of the museum. All sponsors will get advertising space on the museum website, within the museum premises and on all brochures and leaflets, great marketing material and use of the museum facilities and vehicles.

The Music Design Awards recognise designers, worldwide, for the outstanding work they do for the music industry, at every level. To those in the know, designing for the music industry takes hard, hard work and real innovation - strokes of brilliance underscored with inspiration - leading to spectacular end results. Design for the music industry is unrelentingly challenging and occupies the minds of the world's most inspired, leading-edge designers and design houses. The Music Design Awards represent an opportunity for designers around the world to enter their projects for clients. The awards are truly global in context and open to designers from all regions. There are sixty-two awards to win - eleven project categories across five music genre groupings and seven continental region categories. Leading companies seeking to encourage and reward great design for the music industry support the Music Design Awards. The organisers of the Music Design Awards are keen to foster longer term relationships with partners/supporters and build enduring two-way relationships, ensuring supporters benefit from positive exposure and the Awards benefit from the credible support of companies for whom the link between design and music is important. Supporting organisations will benefit from electronic media exposure (in the form of website and editorial content), email activity, e-bulletins and e-ads on search engines. They will also gain exposure in more traditional media such as direct mail, editorial in trade titles, carefully selected display advertising and support from media partners.

The £15.6 million Sheffield College upgrade will lead to new facilities and courses linked to areas of growth for the regional economy. "£6.8 million of this project is being used to build an extension on our Olive Grove Road Campus, which will see the launch of the latest technology, engineering and design facilities including teaching accommodation and workshops. Opened in September 2015, the new centre is known as TED (Technology, Engineering and Design). Through sponsorship opportunities, we are looking to raise additional funds to equip our refurbished workshops and new technical classrooms, with equipment and systems of industry and professional standards - this will ensure our learners have the best possible chance of filling ever-growing employer skills gaps. For example, we are proposing new course provision to include robotics, control systems engineering, design and computer numeric control, and sustainable development. We are aiming to train the next generation of engineers in the latest technology, engineering and design facilities. We currently work with over 1,000 students completing apprenticeships, diploma and higher level qualifications. We have already established strong connections with industry - for example, training apprentices for employers including Tata Steel Speciality Steels". Call for updated details.
